TinRoof has finally entered the world of blogs!
More importantly, it’s because I made a new friend – a Second Life fashion blogger that opened my eyes to the numbers of people writing about Second Life fashion online. There is, apparently, an intricate network of writers that are following virtual fashion trends, sharing their personalized ensembles and expressing their opinions about new products.
We associate so intimately with our avatars, it makes sense that the fashion in Second Life would be just as important to us in-world as it is in our first lives. Interestingly, the in-world fashion scene often parallels the real-world fashion scene. We tend to follow the latest trends and buck the season’s fails, which has led Second Life to be used as a platform for “first life” fashion designers to market-test new ideas.
In this blog, I will share with you my TinRoof Fashion brand as well as my thoughts about fashion and designing in Second Life.
I hope you enjoy it.
